Green Party Candidate Exposed As £50-An-Hour “Escort”

Not a good day for council candidates. This is Dave Walsh, the Green Party candidate in the Portslade ward of Brighton. Dave is a former MOD staffer and web developer by day, but at night it seems he has a slightly more lucrative career. Guido has blacked out some parts of Dave’s profile on “Sleepy Boy”, an “escort” service website:

The Greens are spinning this as “a practical joke” being played on their candidate and the profile has been pulled. But how exactly did this “practical joker” get the full frontal shots and the gagged and bound photos exactly? Like Bill Clinton was caught out by a “defining feature”, Guido is sure the exceptional amount of detail provided about Dave’s gentitals could only have come from the man himself.

In case you are interested, Dave charges £50 for the hour, £80 for two or £120 for the night. Does he realise under the Greens’ socialist policies he would be taxed until the pips squeaked on such a lucrative income? 

UPDATE: The national Green Party press office are standing by the “it’s a joke profile” line. The regional office is closed, which is helpful. Perhaps they could then explain if this was “a joke from eighteen months ago”, why Dave’s profile was recently updated to inform punters that he was “free anytime over Easter”. That’s one way of getting to know the electorate.

Tories Pressure Miliband Over Thatcher Grave Dancer

Tory MP James Wharton has put the boot in regarding Ed Miliband’s choice of people to hug:

“I urge you to apologise for the offence you have caused to so many people in appearing to endorse the sentiment expressed by your Labour Colleague. I trust you will immediately demand the resignation of the Labour Council candidate involved.”

Over to you Ed…

Izzard the Labour Lizzard

Like that persistent tranny who won’t leave you alone at a bar,* Eddie Izzard isn’t fooling anyone. The formerly frocked comedian has given his full-blown support to the “Yes to AV” Campaign, but his pick-up rate hasn’t been too good in the past. Izzard was last seen telling the country that Gordon had saved the world and that we should join the Euro.

But the joke isn’t funny any more. Labour insiders suggest that Izzard is only sucking up to Miliband to take MEP Claude Moraes’ position on the London Labour List for the European Elections. He has been attached to Red Ed’s hip at virtually every Labour Party event since Miliband took over.

Claude is said to be aware Izzard is after his job and is not a happy bunny…

UPDATE : A few minutes after this was posted this popped up:

*Years ago when Guido lived in London’s East End, Izzard used to frequent his local boozer. Eddie would hold court in a cocktail dress to admiring young acolytes. The regulars thought he was a twat.

UPDATE II : Apparently Boulton just put this to Izzard and he confirmed he was interested “in 2020″. Yeah right…

Cameron’s PMQs Catchphrases

A dull Council Questions there, but another interesting line from the PM. Last week it was a nod to Michael Winner and “calm down dear” and this week Cameron went for Benny Hill’s favourite ‘fairy dairy land’.

Is there some sort of catchphrase-dropping bet going on?

PMQs LIVE: To AV or Not AV Edition

Quote of the Day

Labour Peer Lord Winston says it like it is

“AV was used to elect the Labour leader & the winner was the one most didn’t want.”

Ed Won’t Dance When Thatcher Dead

Yesterday it was three cock ups, but today John Humphreys only managed to call Ed Miliband “David”. Guido is sure that’s just what a leader struggling to define his image wanted. He was more interested in the comment Ed was forced to make later over on 5 Live after Guido’s story yesterday:

“We would strongly advise him not to wear that T-shirt. I don’t like that T-shirt. I meet hundreds of people up and down the country and I don’t inspect every T-shirt, but I deplore the sentiments. I don’t think you should dance on anyone’s grave … We have talked to him and he knows it is not the kind of T-shirt we want our councillors to be wearing.”

They tried to deny it as a fake first. Guess that line didn’t work…

Quote of the Day

Ed Miliband admits Labour didn’t introduce AV because it…

“…had no desire to change a system that had served it so well.”

Huge No Lead Opens

In the final furlong, ComRes have the “No to AV” Campaign on 66% and the “Yes to AV” Campaign on 34%.

It’s going to be a long day…

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
